Corrected entry: At the end of the scene where Forrester's identity is revealed, the camera shoots a close up on his book that he pushed aside, lying on the table. Then it reverts to Jamal and Forrester again. Jamal is not shown putting his things in his backpack, and we would see him if he walked to the table to get it. Jamal then exits the apartment without his book, but has it again later in the film without reference of it being returned.

Correction: Just before Jamal is seen packing his backpack, Forrester pushes the book back to him, although he does it very quickly. Jamal even nearly drops it, as Forrester pushes the book at him incredibly fast.

Corrected entry: The basketball court they are playing the championship game on has the 3 point arc line set for NBA distance, which is several feet farther from the basket than the 3 point line for college.

Correction: They are playing at Madison Square Garden, an NBA court. Since they are a high school team, they would probably be more grateful to be allowed to play at the arena then to play by all the high school regulations, college rules would never considered.

Corrected entry: In the beginning of the scene in which Sean Connery leaves his apartment to attend a basketball game he is wearing a heavy coat. Later in the same scene he is wearing a leather jacket.

Correction: if you look closely, you can see the black leather jacket underneath. When they return to his apartment, he is no longer wearing the yellow coat, only the leather jacket, but if you watch very closely, you will see that the yellow coat he had been wearing is draped over his arm.

Factual error: In every shot of William Forrester's apartment building you can clearly see that he lives on the top floor, yet when we see scenes shot inside the apartment building but outside William's apartment you can always clearly see another set of stairs leading up. Where are they going? They are too high to be heading for the roof.
